On accountability

Part of the reason a focus sheet works is that it automatically holds you accountable. You said you needed to get X, Y, and Z done, and I can show you that here, on the focus sheet you wrote just hours ago. If you didn’t do that, there’s a record to prove it. Now, you’ll at least try your very best to be realistic about your short-term goals, or you’ll complete the tasks so as not to be left empty-handed at the end of the day. Practice holding yourself accountable. Don’t rely on someone else to tell you what needs to be done. Learn to be reasonably hard on yourself, and you will never cease to develop.
